Description Six strangers appear unannounced during the editing of a docu-drama, declaring themselves fictional characters in search of an author. As their compelling narrative unfolds, their story is filmed and reality and fiction become increasingly blurred. This stunning play is a parable for a media-obsessed age and an exhilarating exploration of how we define ourselves in the 21st century.
